JSTOR account redistribution (The Wikipedia Library)[edit]

Hi - according to our records you received a free account for JSTOR through The Wikipedia Library. Because we’ve used up all of our allocated accounts, and it’s been some time since they were distributed, we want to redistribute any accounts that aren’t being used to users on our waitlist.

If you’re still using, or plan to use, your JSTOR access, no problem! Simply head over to the Library Card platform, log in, and request a renewal of your account. You should be able to do this from your user page, or the JSTOR signup page. If you can’t find the renewal button, or have any other issues or questions about this, please feel free to leave a message on my talk page. We’ll begin redistributing inactive accounts in September; if you request renewal after then we will only be able to reactivate your account if we have spots remaining. Thanks, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:32, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

A concern[edit]

Hello, Encyclopædius! LionFosset here, the one you alerted to the 10,000 Challenge of WikiProject Asia. Thank you for taking notice of the edits I've been making toward improving Philippine-related articles. I am grateful for that.

At present, however, I am concerned with one of the editors of Philippine articles in Wikipedia, Hotwiki. His dry and strict attitude towards editing articles is off-putting to me, as if he avoids any sort of conversation with editors he just corrected in an article. This is my assumption because I tried to have some sort of friendly acknowledgement of errors made and errors forgiven, but he would just delete the section I posted in his talk page soon after.

As far as I can tell, however, he is one of the more respectable and law-abiding users on Wikipedia, being an editor for 15 straight years now, but it bothers me that he might not see that I myself am honestly trying to constantly improve Wikipedia just like he is. I had a situation with him before, but then recently it got to the point that I made a naive decision to comment passive-agressively about his editing habits for one of my edit summaries (specifically GMA Supershow), which I regret now. As he could be the type to see if I am messaging someone about him right after trying to talk to him, I thought that I could message you here in Wikimedia, for someone to hear my concern at least.

Sincerely, LionFosset (talk) 17:31, 31 May 2020 (UTC)
